Pictures of your portable rig- Part IV- A fresh start - Page 3  

post #31 of 595
Thanks for the welcome
Yes that is a Bean, I got it on a lark for about 80 bux with some pre-xmas coupon juggling at best buy- mainly because I have been curious about OLED technology and wanted to check it out. Its great for car use too, as I dont liek to use the ipod in the car anymore after I had to slam on the brakes and watch it bounce off the dash and then hit the floor.. The PX100's are great for the cost- they sound very similar to portapros, but a touch more laid back. I had the px200's before and they were pretty muddy and not as comfy. I wear the 100's about 6 hours a day with no fatigue with my volume at around 50-60%.

Now THAT is very useful information. Since I've owned PortaPros (and my current Pro-35A's are basically from the same driver lineage), your description there makes perfect sense and tells me exactly what I needed and wanted to know. Thanks!

Zen Micro with Altoids case > cheap interconnect > self built CMoy amp > Koss portaPro

finished the CMoy today, It works perfectly. Now I gotta solder the jacks, switch, and pot onto the other one I made.

Does the GoVibe properly amp the HP-2's? Is Todd the Vinyl Junkie the only place to order the HP-2's in the USA? WOW! Great Pic!

I'm thinking of getting some extra pads and doing the coin mod on my portaPros. What difference did it make for your 35s?

actually, the govibe sounds surprisingly good with the HP-2, considering that it is an unbuffered amp and the HP-2 is a current hog. it's just a stop gap until i get an AE-1, but i'm not suffering at all using the go-vibe. the HP-2 hasn't been available for years, you must be thinking PS-1, but thanks for compliment!

Reduced the boominess a bit. As they came they were a bit too bassy, I think the coin hole lifts the mids&treble a bit, balancing the overall sound slightly.

I have my Pro-35A's sitting here just begging for this mod, really, but I don't have a drill so my mind is racing trying to think of some other method of creating more "ports" in the grill to allow the highs and mids to get through.

Since high frequencies are so directional, it is completely logical to speculate that, even with the driver itself being in such close proximity to our ears, the highs and mids are being affected to some extent by that grill covering the speaker diaphragm.

Putting the holes or "ports" as I prefer to call them into that cover does allow more of those frequencies to pass straight through to our ears without the bounce-back effect which would create negative and out-of-phase sounds - in other words, a bad thing.

I'll get around to doing this mod soon enough, I guess. The Karma should be here later today (w00t!!!) so that'll be a blast. I did the kramer mod to the E2c's I got a few days ago and I did notice a difference in the highs and mids, exactly the effect the mod was expected to have.

That one reminds me of the EX71 mod from a few years ago, removing the tiny little wax guard that opened up the sound quality of those IEMs. Still not convinced that the E2c's are my best choice at the moment, so when the Karma arrives I'm going to audition them as I always do and see what happens.
